How to validate the installer integrity by SHA512 instead of MD5 checksum

KB Number:
000002416

Symptoms:
Customer asking for the MD5 checksum or SHA256 checksum of the Zerto installer

Cause:
MD5 checksum is more common for software verification.
 

Solution:

use the windows certutil to generate SHA512 checksum

for example:
SHA512 that we normally recommend to use as it is more accurate and harder to manipulate
see the below how to get it:
C:\>certutil -hashfile "Zerto Virtual Replication VMware Installer.exe" SHA512
SHA512 hash of Zerto Virtual Replication VMware Installer.exe:
f5bb3194cb19b8b32c449a4abd0f687b3a4e4f5ae15e9d9e7e9810db3b9f6c70f421ec9d6b9f52a67822f4e04906b3132f2afd5171335e8c9d9eb0d9ecb3bf36
CertUtil: -hashfile command completed successfully.

C:\>certutil -hashfile "Zerto Virtual Replication VMware Installer_6.5.41.15.zip" SHA512
SHA512 hash of Zerto Virtual Replication VMware Installer_6.5.41.15.zip:
